At St. Mary's, we firmly believe that science is the basis of understanding the world around us. We promote a love of science through experiencing, investigating and questioning abstract concepts. All children across the school take part in a challenging and thought provoking curriculum, enabling them to question, predict and investigate their own thoughts and ideas. The children are encouraged to become independent in thinking, be responsible, and sensitive to living and non-living environments as well as developing a willingness to tolerate uncertainty.
Working scientifically is the lifeblood of each and every area of subject matter and is what gives life and sustenance to learning new knowledge and developing understanding within science. It is a large part of the new curriculum and is embedded throughout all topics.
